Hi everybody,

Please help me to recover deleted data from an etch Debian server, after an authorized access.
8 GB were deleted from the 20 GB sized single partition existent on a WMVare virtual machine. Backup is too old and irrelevant.

I'm waiting for competent instructions, thanks in advance!

Extundelete

Is there a extundelete binary compiled for Debian Etch?

Did you find anything?

I've toyed with undelete programs before, but that was years ago and I'm not sure what's available now. You may want to have a look at some of the various system rescue bootable CD ISOs that are out there. I've seen some of those that had undelete programs compiled for the rescue CD.

Thanks for taking the time to answer!

Found some tools and tried, no success so far. Will try your suggestions too.
